$$$ is only real reason M has anything to do with him. This guy actually believes he should have a say in who wears what number simply because he wrote a big check. Classless

Is he still from "Lloyd Carr's" university of Michigan or is it back to normal now ? I always liked Braylon, but he's absolutely a traitor to the university.

Oh Braylon, if you could only be the man you actually pretend to be, so many more people would like you.
